Assassin’s Creed Odyssey…

402
When I watched the reveal of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey at Ubisoft’s E3 Showcase I was struck by disappointment. To me, that reveal made the game seem like Assassin’s Creed Origins set in Greece. The UI looked the same, the animations looked the same, and the protagonist’s narrative even seemed…

Singularity Throwback Review…

It is the year 2010 and you are walking through the streets of Santa Monica when you pass by Activision headquarters. It seems like a normal day in the vicinity. A new CoD is being made to stand in for physical money printers that may give off the wrong…

Dead Cells: How…

Throwback Review: Soldier…

513
Price Paid: $5.98 At the risk of betraying the reviewing format, it must immediately be stated that Soldier of Fortune: Payback is one of the most mindless games you could devote your mind to playing.

Throwback Review- Sonic…

384
Welcome to the second and final installment in the Sonic Storybook series, in which Sonic, for whatever reason, appears within a fictional world and the story is retold with Sonic characters. As you can tell from the page image, this is the infamous “Sonic with a sword” game, but that’s…
